Johnny Depp: ‘toate caracterele mele sint gay’, si este clar ca este ironic. Dar la fel de clar este ca in ultimul timp Depp vrea sa imprime un stil personal si aparte interpretarii lui asupra caracterelor jucate. Intelegem ironia, dar trebuie sa recunoasteti ca stilul lui Johnny s-a schimbat radical. De la filmele care l-au facut celebru (Blow, Arizona Dream etc) la Jack Sparrow (Piratii din Caraibe) Depp a evoluat dintr-un rebel, intr-un hipster de 52 de ani iubitor de esarfe colorate. Upgrade sau downgrade?
Cine nu s-a intrebat daca capitanul Jack din Piratii din Caraibe este gay ? Sau daca este beat? Ei bine, pare ca si presedintele studioului Disney a avut aceleasi intrebari pentru Johnny.
They wanted to fire me,” Depp recalled while speaking at AFI Fest 2015, saying that studio executives didn’t quite understand the version of the character he had created. “I remember it trickled back to me that [former Disney CEO] Michael Eisner went on some sort of vent about how, ‘Goddammit, Johnny Depp’s ruining the film. What is it? What is that thing? Is it drunk? Is it gay?’ So I fully expected to be fired.”
When another executive called Depp to ask him about the character, the actor had the perfect response.
“I said, well, didn’t you know that all my characters are gay?” he explained. “I was really expecting to be fired. But they wouldn’t for some reason. They were actually going to subtitle my character – they couldn’t understand Captain Jack,” he says of the role, which eventually nabbed Depp his first Best Actor Oscar nomination.
Lasa Johnny, nu te mai plange, datorita francizei Piratii din Caraibe ti-ai cumparat o insula si ai incasat cecuri frumoase. A meritat stresul 🙂
